Nice walk up short road or through trails in the woods to the top of the hill to see the gorgeous view. Or, if short on time, one can drive up the road instead. It's fun to go up to the top of the tower...More

Poet seat tower was recommended to me by a friend so I decided to visit. The tower was built in 1912 to honor and remember poets that visited the area. I was expecting more but for the most part it provides a beautiful view overlooking...More
